It's just about the simplest possible nsi script ever, but we should still double-check the install processes doesn't add any additional leaks using solid forensic analysis.

I know this is totally off-topic for this ticket, but:

The warning "The destination directory already exists. You can try to upgrade the Tor Browser Bundle, but if you run into any problems, use a new directory instead. Continue?" is not all that user-friendly.

Can we add a sentence about what the user should do to use a new directory? Should the user add an option somewhere? Or extract the archive in a different way? Or just move it to a new location and try again?
